When a visitor-wanted or unwanted, approaches a house on foot or in a vehicle the motion detecting sensor unit of this warning device sends a signal to the receiver indoors, which chimes an alert. The device is wireless and has a 400-foot range(Open Area Only). The sensor is housed in weather-resistant plastic, installs with a screw on any surface, such as a mailbox post, garage, or door, and measures 4-1/4 inches high, 2-5/8 inches wide, and 2-1/4 inches deep.

Important Note:

A) Whenever installing the PIR(Passive Infra-red Sensor) for the 1st time, the red LED on the PIR sensor will be on for 60 seconds and the chime unit will sound for about 60 seconds in order to stabilize the units 1st.

B) In some applications the motion detector may be too sensitive, resulting in false alerts. To remedy this situation, put masking tape or labels on each side of the sensor window. Start on the sides and add an equal length of masking tape or labels to each side. Test the detector and add more covering if needed. Keep the band as narrow as 1/8" wide or wider depending on individual situation. Some trial and error may be required to find the optimal width.

this as seen on tv item actually works great

Works great and has incredible range. I live on a mountain, deep in the woods. I cannot see the beginning of my driveway from the house, but the sensor works from way down there. It does pick up the occasional wildlife that ventures by, but I'd rather have a false alarm than an unexpected "visitor.

The Driveway Patrol works great. In the past I have not been able to hear vehicles outside my house and was startled each time someone knocked on my door. I am now alerted each time someone is in my driveway. The only downfall is that birds and squirrels can set the alarm off. My sensor is approx. 300 feet from where I keep the bell and it has not failed.
Wonderful Product!!

I bought this unit because some Crack-Heads live down the street,I'm just waiting for the night they try to break in, so I'm waking up to every little bump at night. I bought two units and when one sensor is tripped both receivers alarm!! So I can put one receiver in my living room and one receiver in the bedroom and be at peace anywhere in my home! On a side note... Extremely fast shipping by, I mean WOW!! I can sleep in peace tonight! Thank You.

I have two of these low-cost alarms set up, and both become quite intermittent when the temperature reaches 90 degrees and above (in the shade): Sometimes they go off when a person/car goes past, and sometimes they do not. As soon as the temperature decreases though, they become much more reliable. I WOULD NOT RECOMENDED THESE DEVICES FOR SECTIONS OF THE COUNTRY WITH HOT WEATHER, SUCH AS ARIZONA, TEXAS, NEW MEXICO, ETC. Original review: I am very impressed with this alarm: It is accurately able to detect people coming up the stairs of my apartment, and sets off the indoor alarm -- and it has not sent out any false alarms (Most problems with this alarm (that I have read in the reviews below) appear to be caused by the sensor being in direct sun light. This seems to cause these units numerous difficulties, and should have been addressed in the Patrol Sensor's enclosed instructions -- but isn't. However, by simply shielding the outdoor sensor from all *direct* contact with the light of the sun by using tape or opaque plastic, or repositioning the outdoor sensor, appears to eliminate false alarms or no alarms). This alarm unit appears to be quite well made, and the price is, of course, incredibly low. Great buy!!

Yes, I have received my recent order. As a matter a fact; my neighbor has already installed it. It took a little time to get it set up, but it has been working ever since. My neighbor came back over, after I thought he left he went in the back where the device is, and broke the beam. I was right there and saw him. He thought I would not hear the loud beep. I did. He told me it was just a test and it worked. Thank you for such a nice device and in-expensive for almost anyone who is having a problem with intruders on their property. Thank you!!! BJK
